We’re Giving Away a Funeral (and Will Package)By Chris May 04, 2018 02:46pm
Life plans are important – be prepared, your loved ones will be grateful
On Wednesday, July 18 – fans at the Victoria HarbourCats game vs. the Corvallis Knights, a rematch of the 2017 WCL final series, will have a chance to win a funeral.
TONEFF FUNERAL SERVICES and H.W. WALLACE CREMATION SERVICE are providers of cremation and funeral service to the people of Vancouver Island, and are pleased to offer the draw winner a basic cremation package, which includes but not limited to the following – cremation service, cremation casket, and one original death certificate. This has a retail value of $2,500.
As well, do you have a will? As part of this, MARY S. McMANUS, a barrister/solicitor with the Stevenson Doell Law Corporation of Victoria, will provide a Will, Power of Attorney and Advanced Directive for Health Care — worth $800 (excluding taxes and disbursements), helping the winner ensure their family is looked after for those days we all will eventually encounter.
Adding to the package, Adamek Financial will schedule a complimentary insurance and financial planning consultation, to assist with the dollars-and-cents aspects of planning for the future. Scott Grant, Senior Consultant for Adamek Financial – a company with corporate season tickets to HarbourCats games – will spend time with the draw winner.
“This is a way to bring awareness to making sure people plan their futures in a way that helps their family deal with something that is inevitable to us all,” said Jim Swanson, Managing Partner of the HarbourCats.
“My family encountered a tragic and unexpected death not long ago, and not having all these things looked after in advance caused the heartache to be even greater. We’re thankful to Eric Toneff of Toneff Funeral Services, to Mary McManus, and to Mike Adamek, Scott Grant and the team at Adamek for stepping forward to help get this message out.”
“Victoria is a great city, many people who move here to enjoy the twilight of their lives, and not everyone has put these plans in place. This is about awareness, and we hope this night leads to more people getting all their affairs in order.”
